My friend sent me this article from the WSJ last week – who knew there was such a thing as National Ice Tea Month?? Any excuse to talk about the benefits of tea I’ll take it! I drink it pretty much every day and it works wonders on not only your skin, but your stress levels and countless studies have shown that the polyphenols derived from tea can help ward off several chronic diseases. While I’m more than happy to sip on my Kusmi tea when I’m home alone or at work, I’m in the Hamptons pretty much every weekend during the summer and it’s rare that I’m not hosting a few people while out East. I love this pitcher from Primula for when I have guests. It’s the perfect way to make a flavorful batch of tea for a bigger group of people and you can make it as healthy and booze-free – or – as booze filled as you like (I don’t drink, but like any good hostess I keep lots of liquor on hand…).
The 3-in-1 products comes with a flavor infuser which you can fill with fresh fruit, herbs, or spices to add flavor to water, tea, or pretty much anything – aside for flavoring my tea, I love this for making sangria. The kit also comes with a stainless steel tea infuser designed to brew loose tea or ground coffee, either hot or cold, and because the filter sits low in the pitcher you can make enough for one or make enough for a big group. Lastly, the kit comes with a chill core filled with non-toxic gel, so you can keep your drink cold without diluting the flavor with ice.
